I just looked over at Boh snoring next to me on the couch, and thought you might want to see a little bit of what we’ve been up to the last few months. I’m not knitting very much, but I’m hoping that my fingers will want to work on something simple and help me catch up on the wedding gift knitting in my queue. Things are very busy around here — fellowship applications, the academic job market, the dissertation. I can’t promise there will be much blogging, but I am still here, still reading blogs, and still very much appreciating the internet community of knitters and spinners. Happy fall to all of you.


Boh enjoying one of our favorite places to walk.


And wade.


We enjoyed watching this flicker look for treats on the stone steps outside the enclosed porch.


Scrambed eggs, avocado, and salsa on corn tortillas: lunch of dissertators (champions?).


Negroni on the porch.


I had the flu a few weeks ago, and Boh took care of me.


A self portrait in the very fancy bathroom of a new building on campus.


Sitting on the dock.


My mom came for a quick visit, and she brought me a pumpkin!


Farm flowers. The gladiolas this year were gorgeous.


Happy, happy dog.



Fall has begun. I love it, and I think Boh really does, too. Maybe there’s something about the smell of leaves?


Fancy shoes and a manhattan help with proofreading, right? (One of my goals for this fall is to become a little bit more proficient in the land of mixing drinks.)

Thanks for reading, friends.

  1. Good luck with dissertation and fellowship writing, and the job search! Give Boh a pat for me. Seems like he could be a very good bartender and drink-mixer…he would look good in the bowtie and vest, that’s for sure.

  2. Glad you’re doing well, understand about the busyness. Do what you can and thanks for sharing your sweet Boh.

  3. Thanks for updating. You are going to be a busy lady for a while and we all understand that. Give Boh an ear scratch from this knitter.

  4. So glad your alive and well! Boh is such a cute snuggly cuddler! A drink, a dog and knitting, it doesn’t get much better than that. Good luck on your academic pursuits!

  5. Looks like you’re living the dream! Mmm… Negronis, fall walks, a cuddly dog, what’s not to love? Do you like spritzes? That’s my favorite way to enjoy Campari or Aperol.

  6. Merry Christmas. I hope this finds you and Boh well. May the new year bring peace, health, a finished dissertation, a job you enjoy and some great knitting.
